Oregon Spotted Frog

Thanks to continued support from Friends of Oregon Advocates, we won protections for the fragile Oregon spotted frog and its sensitive aquatic habitat along the Deschutes River and on the Antelope Allotment of the Fremont-Winema National Forest!

About the Campaign

Immediate changes to dam operations on the Upper Deschutes have improved conditions for this threatened species, and long-term improvements will give this spotted frog population a real chance at recovery. And the large Chemult pasture of the Antelope Allotment, which contains critical Oregon spotted frog habitat, is now closed to grazing until further notice.

We are excited to see how the Oregon spotted frog and its habitat rebounds. Sincerest thanks to Friends of Oregon Advocates, who supported and encouraged this important work over the years. Not only did they commit to funding this cause in its entirety, they are also continuing to monitor the frog and its habitat – helping ensure the terms of our winning litigation are being met.
